About me

Born in Adelaide, Australia. Grew up in Canberra, Australia, and after an already outdoor-dominated youth started climbing during my second year of university. I moved to Texas at the end of 2005 and have been living in Austin since 2012.

I've been climbing for just over 20 years, having visited many countries, and have climbed in various settings including; the Canadian Rockies, Squamish, Red Rock, New River Gorge, Grampians, Blue Mountains, Arapiles, Thailand, Frankenjura, Lover's Leap and ice/alpine in Colorado, New Zealand and the Canadian Rockies.
